Celebrities get paid for just about everything. Their agents and managers are always looking for ways to pull in more cash. Tweeting is the next big thing in celebrity revenue streams.

Tyler Perry is apparently fed up with the negative backlash and media hoopla surrounding the appearance of Kim Kardashian in his upcoming film, The Marriage Counselor.

Tyler sent out his personal message late Wednesday night to those boycotting him on the film. Thousands of petitions have also been sent to him and the E!  Network as viewers are demanding the removal of the Kardashian family in film and TV.

Interestingly, even black hollywood have shown their disappointment in Perry’s casing decision as respected actresses like Holly Robinson Peete have chimed in that “blacktresses” are upset about Tyler’s main role casting decision, regardless of the transparent decision to do so for publicity and money making purposes.

With the recent grassroots petition to stop Tyler’s film altogether, Perry released the following statement to clear up Kim’s role and why we should be giving her another chance:

I think many of you know that this is a very difficult time of year for me, so what I try to do is make sure that I’m working during this time. All I wanted to do was shoot a great film and try to keep my mind off the holiday grief that I have been experiencing for the past two years. I could not have imagined I’d be getting all these emails about Kim Kardashian. I HAVE SEEN THEM!! YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD!! …LOL. Now, may I say something? Can a brother get a word in?….LOL. Y’all gave me a new movie title, Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman Cause You Hired Kim Kardashian, Don’t Make Me Take Off My Earrings and Boycott Yo A**.”…LOL. Some of my ladies are upset. Ok, all jokes aside, can I have my say? Will you at least here me out?
